BSO MOVES INTO TAIWAN TO DELIVER NEW CONNECTIVITY ROUTES TO EMERGING MARKETS

Global network provider BSO has announced a new direct connectivity link from the Taipei Internet Exchange to venues in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.

The move into Taiwan builds on BSO’s heritage as the leading low-latency connectivity provider to the emerging markets.

BSO, who will be present in the Chief IDC data centre complex which hosts the Taipei Internet Exchange, is enabling market makers to trade faster into some of the world’s highest-growth regions.

The move supports the Taipei Internet Exchange’s upgrade of its algorithmic trading platform, as it continues to meet the speed demands of electronic traders.

Tony Chang, Sr. Vice President of Sales at Chief IDC Taiwan said:

“Our members are always seeking the lowest possible latency and most reliable access to high-growth global trading venues to execute trades faster and without interruption. The flexibility of BSO to adjust its low-latency connectivity to new destinations ensures our clients quickly access the most profitable markets.”

Fraser Bell, Chief Revenue Officer at BSO, added: “Being at the forefront of connecting the trading community to new and high-growth regions such as Taiwan is core to BSO’s service-led approach. Our presence in the exchange reinforces our continued commitment to providing the electronic trading community with continuous and stable access to the most profitable and attractive markets.”

BSO’s move into Taiwan meets the growing demand for more reliable and flexible services that suit the needs of market makers looking to ramp up their trading activity across emerging regions.

The Taipei Internet Exchange is the latest in a long line of emerging market focused agreements BSO has struck, following announcements with Sucden FinancialRJO Brien and the CME Group earlier this year.
